Intro A person’s sense of belonging is dependent on their physical appearances and identity. The poem begins with the article “A”, which creates a sense of ambiguity and curiosity, as the audience is not informed of what this creature is. Its gender is identified through “narrow fellow” indicating that it is a male. Its physical appearance is also revealed through the adjective “narrow”. Emily Dickinson cleverly establishes the idea that one’s gender and appearance becomes their identity as these are the only details provided to the audience in the first line, and since the creature is not given a name or anything, it causes the audience to judge the creature based on appearance. “grass” is part of nature, and it establishes the setting, the environment in which the creature belongs to, with nature, which contrasts human civilisation and therefore it can be concluded that this creature does not belong.
